True Colors

True Colors Ministry at Highland began in January 2011 as an affirming outreach ministry of the church to those in the LGBTQ community. Led by ministry leader and Highland member, Rev. Bojangles Blanchard, True Colors celebrates diversity and seeks to support, assist, and fellowship among folk who are lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgendered. True Colors Ministry does not seek to reform or change anyone’s sexuality. We affirm who God created you to be.

Rev. Bojangles BlanchardAll are invited to come and…

    • Share your story and hear the stories of others.

    • Find support, guidance, and prayer for your struggles.
    • Worship God while embracing who you are in the midst of an inclusive faith community.
    • Fully realize the unconditional love Jesus Christ has for you.

True Colors Ministry gatherings occur on the first Sunday of every month at 5:00 p.m. in Highland’s Fireside Room. Updated times and location changes can be found in the church newsletter or on True Colors Facebook Page at :
